Tea Party Idiot Claims Cycling is Part of U.N. World Takeover

6 08 2010

Just when you think people politicians cant get any dumber, here comes Dan Maesrunning nuckle-dragging in the Denver gubernatorial race.

According to the challenger Maes, John Hickenlooper’s (the current Mayor of Denver) policies are “all very well-disguised, but will be exposed,”. In particular his advocacy of cycling, is “converting Denver into a United Nations community.”

 Maes says he thought (he thought? i find that hard to believe) the current mayor’s promoting of cycling and other environmental concerns were harmless and well-meaning. Now says Maes, he can see the truth and “that’s exactly the attitude they want you to have.”

Maes went on to say: “At first, I thought, ‘Gosh, public transportation, what’s wrong with that, and what’s wrong with people parking their cars and riding their bikes? And what’s wrong with incentives for green cars?’ But if you do your homework and research, you realize ICLEI is part of a greater strategy to rein in American cities under a United Nations treaty,”

I suppose that if “they” want “us” to be more friendly toward the environment, stop driving cars, start riding bikes and that is somehow the way in which “they” will control the world its not so bad. Sign me up, give me my mark of the beast tattoo and clip me into my pedals.

And this man is leading in the polls?

AMERICA! FUCK YEAH!
